Leaf and Brush Pick-Up

Leaf and Brush Pick-Up

Two times each year, the City of Loveland Public Works Department picks up brush for residents.  This is coordinated by the day of week your recycling/trash is picked up.

In the fall, the City of Loveland also offers a leaf pick-up in conjunction with the brush pick up. You may notice that your leaves have not all fallen before the leaf pick-up date comes.  This is because there are many neighborhoods to reach before the first snowfall.  We do our best to go back to neighborhoods a second time to pick up remaining leaves.

Leaf Pick-Up

The 2014 City of Loveland annual fall leaf collection schedule will begin on October 13 this year.  Leaf collection during this period will be done by a City crew using mechanical equipment similar to a vacuum cleaner.  Residents are instructed to rake leaves to a place near the street or curb.  Do not place leaf piles on the sidewalk, gutters, ditches, roads, or blocking fire hydrants.

In each of the neighborhoods or streets listed below, a crew will be working the area on the dates shown and the crew will be making one pass on each street during the period of collection. The schedule calls for each neighborhood to have two collection periods. Residents are requested to have leaves at the curb prior to the beginning date of the scheduled pick-up period in the following neighborhoods:

The spring 2015 brush pickup program will begin on Monday, March 9, 2015 and will run for five weeks. Brush must be placed at the curb no later than Sunday night of the scheduled week of each collection. The following will be our schedule for brush pickup:

The following are guidelines established for the brush pick-up program:

  1. Limbs cannot exceed 10” in diameter at the cut section.
  2. Small twigs and sticks should be bundled with twine in bundles 12” in diameter.  Twigs or sticks can also be placed in a container at the curb, but no other yard waste should be in the containers.  Please, no loose piles of sticks and debris.
  3. Limbs should be placed at the curb with the cut section facing the street and all limbs should be facing the same direction.  This makes it easier and faster to handle.
  4. Brush must be placed at the curb or edge of roadway.  Do NOT place brush in the roadway, gutter, ditches, or on sidewalks.  Do NOT block fire hydrants.
  5. No leaves, pine needles, grass clippings, or other yard waste will be collected.

Any material not meeting these requirements cannot be collected and will be left at the curb.

Wood chips will be available again this year at the Public Works Department, 10980 Loveland-Madeira Road.  Anyone in the City who would like a full load of wood chips should call 513-707-1439.

Outside the regular pick-up schedule, residents are encouraged to come to City Hall to get a free voucher to drop off any yard waste to Evans Landscaping.  The City also offers a second brush pick-up in the fall in addition to leaf collection.
